This Pet of the Week is kinda nutty - his name is PISTACHIO and he is up for adoption at It Takes a Village in Evansville. And thanks to another generous sponsor, this sweet fella has no adoption fee, which means he is FREE to the right home.

PISTACHIO is a distinguished senior (he's 7 years old) Labrador Retriever with a beautiful brindle coat. Don't let his age fool you, though, this dude is still full of playful energy and has no problem keeping up with you and any other younger pups.

PISTACHIO has also earned the title of "snuggle bug" at ITV due to his deep-rooted love for cuddles and companionship. His happy place is definitely close to his human friends, but he's also open to meeting other furry friends.

If you're looking for a loyal companion who blends maturity, playfulness, and affection, look no further than PISTACHIO. A special thanks to NextHome by Hahn & Kiefer Real Estate Services for sponsoring PISTACHIO's adoption fee, which hopefully helps this guy find a loving home.

Please fill out an online adoption application, and then once approved, you can schedule a meet and greet with this lovable fella who is sure to bring joy and warmth into your home.

All the animals at It Takes a Village are examined by a veterinarian, given age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormed, microchipped, spayed or neutered, heartworm tested, and treated if necessary.

If our pet of the week isn’t the right fit for your home, please visit It Takes a Village to see the other rescues that need to get fostered and adopted. And don't forget about their RENT A DOG Program. A quick fill form and copy of your photo ID will allow you time out with one of ITV's vetted shelter dogs. These day dates are great for the rescues - it gets them some exercise and new information to help us get them adopted. It’s been a big hit- so don’t miss out!

25 Unusual Things Owners Say They're Pets Have Eaten

Having a pet, especially a dog, is like having a toddler all the time. If you don't see or hear them for a while, it usually means they're getting into something they're not supposed to be getting into. After my dog had to have surgery to remove a lump of carpet she had eaten, I wanted to know if there were any other strange or unusual things other people's pets have digested. How some of these animals still have working digestive systems is nothing short of a medical miracle. It's a good thing they're cute.
